Other parts

Some of the first musical sounds I can remember came from a big, mechanical music box - a calliope - built right into the center of a lovely carousel at at nearby amusement park. -Calliope is a four movement piece with descriptive titles recalling some of the images the carousel/calliope suggested to me as a child. -The first performance of Calliope took place in New York (see review NY Times 1/4/03). -NB There is also a version of Calliope for saxophone quartet. The MP3 is a performance of the first movement played by a saxophone quartet.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
